It is known that only acrosome-reacted spermatozoa can fuse with the oolemma during normal fertilization with zona pellucida-intact oocytes. The aim of this study was to determine if the oolemma of human zona pellucida-free oocytes selectively binds spermatozoa with normal morphology and a reacted acrosome. Oocytes that failed to fertilize in vitro because… CONTINUE READING
